Silent auction proceeds benefited Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin.
"One thing that Covid has taught us is that you need to take care of people that you don't know," former Packers defensive back LeRoy Butler told NBC 26. "And that way, we can get back and see some great teammates that I haven't seen for 20 years, help charities and just get out and have a great time."
Organizers of the event hoped to raise at least $500,000.
"It helps us fund programs like our counseling program, some school-based mental health, our sexual assault center and crisis center," Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin President and CEO Lois Mischler said about her largest fundraiser of the year.
The fundraiser was a partnership with Family Services and Green Bay Packers Give Back.
